Weekly Words of Wisdom: H is for HAPPY – An ex-husband once said to me, “You just don’t know how to be happy.” Of course, I didn’t believe him. I figured the reason I was so unhappy was because I was in a crappy marriage.

Turns out he was right because a few years later I realized that even without the crappy marriage, I was still struggling to be happy. His words really left a mark on my heart.

I’ve made many trips around the Sun since those days, and it would be impossible to share (within this brief space) the countless reasons for my happiness today; although, I do give lots of credit to my yoga practice!

I feel joy from the inside out now, which is such a contrast to the old way of looking for it somewhere on the outside of me.

My friends, it’s our birthright to experience joy in this life. Cultivate a new way of thinking by realizing YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY! The cool thing is that you already know how, but sometimes we need to be reminded.

Go have some fun doing something you love. Be with a friend or family member who makes you laugh. Go outside and soak up some Mother Earth and Vitamin D. Practice being HAPPY until it feels natural.

HAPPY looks good on you!
